Manning has bursa sac removed
INDIANAPOLIS – Indianapolis Colts quarterback Peyton Manning had a medical procedure Monday to remove an infected bursa sac from his left knee.
Colts president Bill Polian announced the procedure, described as routine, on Monday night. Polian said the team’s medical staff expects Manning to have “a full and complete return to action” in four to six weeks. Colts training camp begins July 25.
Polian said Manning has been receiving “conservative” treatment for the inflamed bursa sac since February. He said that treatment was effective until Manning experienced increased pain and early signs of infection.
Manning has started 160 straight games dating back to the first game of his rookie season. He has the longest streak in the league if Brett Favre remains retired.
“I’m going into my 11th year. I’m 32, but I really feel I’m in a younger body than that,” Manning said last week. “I feel I’m in a 28-year-old body because I’ve had great protection from my offensive line. I feel that’s hopefully going to allow me to play a number of more years.”
Remaining World Series of Poker
players eye finals, $9.12M payday
LAS VEGAS- Each bet, each call and each bust on Monday at the World Series of Poker brought players closer to a ticket to the tournament’s final table and the $9.12 million payday that goes to the winner.
The player who takes the title in poker’s richest contest – to be decided in November after the no-limit Texas Hold ’em main event takes a four-month break – will have never won a world series tournament before.
The last two gold bracelet winners, Phi Nguyen and Brandon Cantu, were eliminated early Monday after the cards fell in favor of their opponents.
The last woman in the field, 24-year-old actress Tiffany Michelle, was eliminated in 17th place after the deepest run a woman has made in the tournament since 2006, when the event saw a record 8,773 entries and Sabyl Cohen won $123,699 for 56th place.
Michelle’s 17th place was the best finish for a woman in the main event since 2000.
